Kabacubya underwent life-changing gynecological surgery.

Kabacubya’s uterine prolapse repair was a success. She is no longer at risk of having chronic urinary tract infections. After recovery, she will be able to work in her gardens.

“I feel better,” Kabacubya shared. “I am excited about recovering so that I can look after my family. I hope I will have enough strength after recovery so that I work had to produce enough food. Thank you so much for the good spirit you have. I am praying for God’s blessings and abundant love to you.”

More than five years ago, Kabacubya, a 58-year-old woman from Uganda, started experiencing difficulty passing urine. When she visited a hospital the first time, she was told that she might need surgery. However, Kabacubya could not go back to hospital because she could not afford the surgery.

She feels weak and uncomfortable, and for quite some time now, Kabacubya has not been able to work in her gardens - which she fears might result into shortage of food in her home. She has been diagnosed with uterine prolapse.

Kabacubya is a widow and a mother of five. Her husband passed away in 2001. At the time of her husband’s passing, all her children were in school and she struggled to raise them. Kabacubya’s last born is still in school. Kabacubya is worried about her condition, but she cannot afford treatment on top of paying school fees for her youngest and supporting her daughter who is deaf, educated, but cannot find a job.

Improved quality of life is what we hope for Kabacubya after a uterine prolapse repair, which costs $280. She will be free from the risk of chronic urinary tract infection. “I will be very grateful if you help me have surgery,” shares Kabacubya.

After surgery, Kabacubya hopes to regain her strength and resume taking care of her fields so that she can get enough food for her family, and sell some to earn an extra income.
